Jul-27-06  ChessDude33: wow...what i wouldn't give to have whites position aftr 8. Bc4, this gambit is awesome, taking full advantage of the early queen development in the scandinavian (and yes i realize AG Berg isn't exactly the best player).

Per Lasker vs S T Sharp, 1905, this game should be dated April 29th. The <Philadelphia Inquirer>, April 30th, 1905, p.16, cited there, gives a list of all of Lasker's opponents, including <A Goldberg> (very likely this one: A Goldberg). Whyld's source, the <Literary Digest> of June 10th 1905, evidently corrupted this to <A G Berg>. It also has <15. Bxd6 and White won>, so apparently Black didn't throw in the towel.
